There will be a great deal of calm after the storm for Newcastle on Wednesday night when they take on Tranmere Rovers in the Carabao Cup.
Eddie Howe’s side put on a sensational performance in the 3-3 draw with Manchester City at the weekend, while Allan Saint-Maximin left St James’ Park with a majestic, full-voiced performance.
They have one win and two draws from their first three Premier League games but will now turn to the trophy when they begin their silverware hunt this season.
Standing in their way is Tranmere of the second tier, who have won just one of their five league games so far.
Here’s everything you need to know about the clash.
When does Tranmere play Newcastle?
The game will kick off at 19:45 BST on Wednesday 24th August. It will be played at Prenton Park.
How can I view it?
It will be shown live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Football, with coverage starting at 19:00 on Sky Sports Football and then from 19:30 on Main Event.
What’s new from the team?
Callum Wilson will not play a part in the game as he suffered a small hamstring problem towards the end of the draw against Manchester City. Dan Burn is also not expected to be risked after taking a ball full in the face on Sunday. Howe will fundamentally change the line-up he started with for the game with the Premier League champions.
Tranmere could add midfield players Lee O’Connor and Jon Nolan to the squad and Cup goalkeeper Mateusz Hewelt is also likely to struggle for a start.
Tranmere: Heworld; Byrne, Turnbull, Jameson, Dacres-Cogley; Nolan, O’Connor, Merrie, Bristow; Hemmings, Nevitt.
Newcastle: Dubravka; Krafth, Lascelles, Fernández, Ritchie; S Longstaff, M Longstaff; Murphy, Anderson, Fraser; wood
Newcastle should have far too much for Tranmere in this game, even with a vastly different side from the side that drew with Manchester City at the weekend. 0-3 Newcastles.
